Description

The National Association for the Advancement of Colored People (NAACP) will host the 66th Annual C.T. Lewis Freedom Fund Celebration at the Egan Center, on Saturday, September 23, 2017 at 7:00 pm, with no host cocktails at 6:00 pm.

The keynote speaker for our major fundraising event of the year will be Rev. Dr. William Barber, II. He is the President of the North Carolina State Conference of the NAACP (2005), and was re-elected National Board Member (2011) and appointed as the National NAACP Chair of the Legislative Political Action Committee. Under his leadership, the NAACP developed a new 21st Century voter registration/voter participation system. Nationwide this system registered more than 442,000 new voters and provided access to 1.5 million voters. Rev. Barber serves as convener of the Forward Together and the HKonJ People’s Assembly. Rev. Dr. Barber led fundraising efforts for the North Carolina NAACP raising more than $2 million of new money over the last seven years and has increased North Carolina NAACP staff from one to seven persons.

Rev. Dr. Barber has written one book entitled, “Preaching Through Unexpected Pain”, and several articles and is currently working on his second book. He has been featured on Wall Street, CNN, MSNBC, the New York Times, Crisis Magazine, and has spoken, preached & lectured around the country.

This year’s theme is “Steadfast and Immovable.” Tickets cost $100 each and there are various levels of sponsorship and marketing advertisement available.

We seek your support to enable the NAACP to continue to fight for the eradication of discrimination and for the equality of all people. A portion of your sponsorship will benefit the Blanche Preston-McSmith Scholarship Fund for graduating high school seniors. As this annual event fast approaches, we sincerely hope that you will respond favorably to our request no later than September 8th, 2017. Thank you in advance for your support of the NAACP and we look forward to seeing you at this year’s celebration!
